This weekend’s descriptions of YUPPIES and DINKYS made me remember the era. Young professionals, making the kind of money that their parents had usually only been able to dream of. Living a life of designer labels, working hard, playing hard, being seen in the right places, having the right place to live, Finding the ‘right’ friends.
Finding a partner, living the life of two incomes, more financial freedom than any other generation had had.
Then I thought of the pressure, keeping up the right face on all fronts. All I can remember is the relief that there was no pressure for me to be like that.
